Walkathon at JCSRS Supporting Masarang Hong Kong Society

At about 9:20 am on October 28th, thirty students from Kowloon Junior School came to our school to join us for our annual Walkathon.

They greeted our primary students visiting different classes, then were paired up with the primary students and joined the secondary students on the KGV field for the Walkathon.

It was a beautiful sunny morning. All the staff and students took part in the event and were walking around the playing field. Additionally, many parents joined us for this annual event. Karin, our principal, welcomed everyone and started the event. It was our honour to have Ms. Adrienne Watson join in the event. She is the chairlady of Masarang HK Society, a registered local charity helping to protect Asian rainforests and endangered animals.

It was amazing to see everyone on the field. Some were fast and got ten stamps (one stamp per lap) and others got four. However, the number of laps did not matter as everyone walked for healthy living and for raising funds to help replant forests and protect the endangered Asian animals, especially orangutans.

It was impressive that our students walked along with KJS students hand in hand. We sincerely appreciate everyone’s effort.

The Walkathon was surely the highlight of the Health and Wellbeing Week!
